GroundScope, the global ground transport services company, announced the launch of its new booking platform at the Business Travel Show.
GroundScope’s new booking platform builds on its existing system and once again raises the bar for travel booking technology. The new platform offers GroundScope clients quick and easy travel booking within a total of just 5 screens. An address recognition addition ensures addresses are easy to look up and pre population of fields has been added – again making it easier for clients selecting multiple bookings to and from regular locations such as airports or head offices. The system also incorporates flight and airport recognition – for greater booker peace of mind.

The new tool makes journey changes easier to manage and the already extensive payment options have also been extended to allow for multiple credit card use. Travel managers and bookers are also better supported via full description of carriers terms and conditions which ensures informed choices can be made in line with travel policies
All existing GroundScope clients are being migrated to the new platform with no additional service charges; in line with GroundScope’s aim to ensure that the best technical solution is available to all clients.

John McCallion, GroundScope CEO commented: “I am delighted we are able to launch our new booking platform at the Business Travel Show – the most prestigious event in our calendar.” John added: “At GroundScope, we believe that we should always aim to deliver the best to our clients – whether in customer service or technology. Our technical team have spent the past year building functionality into our platform. These enhancements have been based on working closely with our clients to understand how we can serve them better and reviewing technology advances to bring the best into the travel market via our booking platform.”
